Most people do not think of the NES when they think of pinball. They would be very right to forget the small library of sub par pinball games on the otherwise heralded system...but SOMEONE has to play'em right? While it only has a few titles, the NES is certainly one of the places you could play.

Heya Friends! Over the holiday break, I took a trip to one of my favorite places on earth, and decided it needed to be shared with everyone. Silverball Museum, located on the Asbury Park boardwalk, is a "pay-one-price" style arcade loaded with a plethora of classic and new pinball machines, as well as some staple game cabinets.

Well, after a long time, it seems I'm finally gonna get back to writing some more (maybe).
To start out, I thought i'd bring up a recent strike from the backlog: Pinball quest

if you are not familiar with pinball, come back and read this when you turn 5.(and on a related note, wait a little pretty sure swear words will lurk their way in here somehow)

I picked pinball quest up right before Christmas at my local game store (....shameless plug => since i had some extra $ on me and it looked pretty bad ass (and for 2.99 you really cant go wrong)

Bad ass this isn't.

Lets start out at the top: you have 3 separate, multi tiered levels which handle like basic nes pinball games should, albeit a little choppier. The real meat and potatos is the "RPG mode"

This screen above me is where you will spend most of your time...trying to hit that damn left ramp! Once you pass that, you have to kill some skeletons...which 9-10 times bump you back down after 1 hit. Then after you kill all of them, and the giant skeleton king that pops up, its on to the shop with its over priced stuff!

as you can see, "steal" is actually an option: and it becomes a requirement...

after the shop, you fight a witch, who is impossible without upgraded flipper damage...she keeps healing, and although you can break her healing fountain, you just keep getting knocked back >.>

eventually, my game devolved into fighting on the first two screens, and trying to steal from the shopkeeper in between. eventually, i stole the permanent blockers and the best flippers in game....which made quick work of everything after that...kinda felt like cheating though.

for the 3$ i spent, it was funish...if nothing else, it makes a decent paperweight.

Till next time, stay classy San Diego
